If any of those are 33's, bait cast or star drag you can do them yourself with the following guides - if you've got star drag bait cast or conventional to overhaul read the description to see if a video is available for your exact model - good luck getting them back in shape!:

Light Overhaul & Lube (Clean, Repair, Fix Grandpa's Zebco 33):



Heavy Overhaul: Gear Removal (Zebco 33):



Star Drag Type Reel Washer Update (this was done on my father's reel - principles are the same for most star drag update/changes of any mfg):
